    Loft Challenge

    Hello, this will be my entry for this challenge.

    One of my favorite spaces is the studio and home on 101 Spring Street in Soho, New York. This cast-iron building was bought by the artist Donald Judd in 1968. The building was built in 1870 and designed by Nicholas Whyte. Donald Judd’s idea about the building is that the given circumstances should be very simple: the floors must be open, the right angle of windows on each floor must not be interrupted, and any changes must be compatible. The requirements were that the building be useful for living and working and more importantly, more definitely, be a space in which to install work of his and of others.

    A renovation of the building was completed in 2013 by the Judd Foundation. The documentation and drawings has been the base of my inspiration, modelling and texturing for this competition.

    Starting with some basic modeling from plans in Archicad:

    Using the Archicad model as a base I then start to add details and textures:

    Hay fredd,

    merry christmas at first!

    I'm a german architecture student and need to model the whole building in 3d. It's hard for me to find good plan materials. In your description you wrote, that there seems to be al lot of plans from the renovation in 2013. Could you tell me where to find those?
    The only plans i could find are those from the foundations website in a way too small scale.

    By the way, very nice rendering work! I'm still trying to learn it.
